    A beautiful book, artfully written and agelessly wise It shows how the innocence of childhood can be a powerful source of healing for souls that are worn and damaged by grief And it is told with a wonderfully warm voice that melts the story straight into your heart.

    Strong female characters populate this unusual World War II story that takes place after the war ends in Walla Walla, WA Annie Leigh Howard faces the loss of her MIA father, the changes in an uncle damaged by combat, and racism directed at a woman who becomes her friend.
